    RE: WACO YMF

    Stickbuilder,

    I have both the 1/5 and 1/6 Pica kits to build, and feel the WACO is the sharpest bi-plane around. The information from this thread has really given me the modivation to start one of the kits instead of just looking at them! I also would like to join the Brotherhood!

    RE: WACO YMF

    Bill- You wanted to see the fuse after I primed it, well here it is. It amazed me how smooth it came out without sanding the primer. The flash kind of washed out the tail detail.

    I haven't primed anything else yet, I want to mount the fittings for the flying wires on the wings before I spray them, but all the doping (three coats) is done.

    RE: WACO YMF

    Ken,
    Waaayyy Cool! I need to get back in gear and finish covering the fuse on mine, so I can get it in primer. The detail on your fuse is just great! Did you use white or light grey primer? It looks white, but I guess that could be the flash?!?

    RE: WACO YMF

    It's white. Rustoleum Clean Metal Primer. I brushed on the first coat, after seeing what a friend's plane looked like using the primer as a filler for the fabric. his technique using a foam brush must have been better than mine, so I sprayed a second coat. I may not even have to sand it before painting, it came out so smooth. I'm just gonna spray the wings. There will be some color on the plane by weekend.

    RE: WACO YMF

    Hey guys, I have to admit, I really don't like the way the wing builds. For some reason, I simply don't like the spar exposed to the bottom of the wing. Now -obviously- it doesn't effect anything, but I have a hard time keeping the sheeting flush to the bottom of the spar, and the wing is not built in three seperate pieces.

    Do you guys change this proceedure at all, or am I just being stupid!!! (Be honest!)

    I do build the wings as 3 seperate pieces. Also the spar joiners are way too small, so I make them much longer. I build the center sections first, and then the outer bays. I'm not crazy about the spar being exposed to the wing bottom, so on this one (the one that I'm building now) I'm adding 1/16" cap stripping top and bottom. These will begin at the leading edge and terminate at the trailing edge. At the leading edge they will taper away to nothing for the final 1/4" to replicate the tubular leading edge of the full scale. This should eliminate the spar showing on the covering and look much more scale like. I have not had any problem with keeping the D-tube sheeting even with the spar, but then again, my technique may differ from yours. Think about the cap strips, and let me know your thoughts on this techinque.

    RE: WACO YMF

    Check out the the piccies on post 270, page 80 and pretend that the rib is sheet balsa. The capping strip just holds the fabric off the spar, and is the same thickness as the L/E sheeting. This allows a full depth spar, that doesn't show through the finish or affect the wing profile.

    Thanks guys.

    My building techniques fall a lot more in line with what you said Stickbuilder. I just do it that way, the way I feel comfortable with.

    RE: WACO YMF

    Here are some pictures of my progress so far. I built up the crutch by laminating three 1/8" and one 1/16" sticks for each side.

    We are getting there on the tee shirt order; the target is to print 72 shirts. I think we have requests for 28 so far.

    Jay,
    The fuse looks good, are you building this from a kit or from scratch? The reason I ask is the way the numbers are printed on the formers !

    Thanks, I'm scratching it. I bought a set of 3/8" rubber stamps at the craft store. I cut a batch of parts and stamp them as I go. I'll post a picture of them sometime.

    Jay,

    I like the rubber stamp thing. It beats using a roller ball pen all to the dickens. The kit never had the parts identified at all.

    Its easy, just glue all the pieces together, and sand off everything that doesnt look like an airplane.

    Jay, there's a Big Bird Fly-in at Mocksville tomorrow, just found out about it a while ago. A bunch of us will be there.

    All the wing wire fittings are in place, time to shoot more primer.
